    Dear HM1 Leslie Carter,
    Thank you for your service as a Hospital Corpsman 1st Class. Thank you for the lives you saved. I was born on your birthday, sigh. Your 74th birthday is in 3 weeks. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I had the privilege of going through Great Lakes Corps School with Leslie. He was always upbeat. Great to talk to, always including others in conversations. Think of him often. Sorry he died so young.

    My husband, kids, and I visited Mr. Carter's place on the wall in Washington DC this week at the request of my father, Roger Pompeo. Mr. Carter and my father were friends, and served together in Vietnam. It was an honor to show my kids his name on the wall, and they made a rubbing of his name to bring home with us. It made a big impression on them to know that my father never forgot his long lost friend even after all these years.
